New Delhi, Aug 10 (ANI): China's Health Ministry has ordered probe into claims that the milk powder manufactured by a Chinese company is causing infant girls to grow breasts.

According to, Ministry spokesman Deng Haihua said at a regular press conference that food safety authorities were already testing samples of milk powder made by Syrutra, a Qingdao-based company.

Deng said that there could be other reasons behind the abnormal growth of breasts in the infants, and experts had no way to definitely determine if food or environmental factors were involved.

Media reports said parents and doctors in Hubei had feared that hormones in milk powder produced by Syrutra had caused at least three infant girls to develop prematurely. (ANI)
